Hello,

I have followed all the instructions to import terms into Multiterm. I alredy did all the steps in Excel, then saved the file as .txt. as well as in .xml and I still cannot do it, when I put import, 0 entries are processed. Does any one have a clue what I am doing wrong? By the way, I only want to add 2 columns.

(I have Multiterm iX, Windows XP, Office 2003 and Trados 6.5)

Which version? Did you use MT Convert? Aug 19, 2005

Hi Greta,
Which version of MTiX are you using (Full version number including the 'build number', please - go to Help - About... to find out)?

Did you use MT Convert? If so, the conversion process yields two files: (1) the termbase definition (.xdt), which you use to create a termbase; and (2) the import file (.xml).

Best regards,
Ralf

Use MT Convert Aug 19, 2005

Use MT Convert, as Ralf suggested. Prepare the Excel file - it should contain only the information you want to import. You said there were only two columns, it's the easiest case. Just make sure each column has a heading, probably "English" and "Spanish".

Use MT Convert to convert the Excel file to a termbase definition and an import XML file. Follow the instructions and documentation.

Start MultiTerm, create a new termase using the definition created by MT Convert and import the XML file.
